    EDIT: I am now going to set up a thread for this at the CFCSP website. If you wish to join, you are almost certainly in the Socialist Party and please sign up their. If you are not in the Socialist Party sign up here.

    Description
    This is a group of MPs who share a common view of Marxism.

    Requirements
    You do not neccesarilly have to be a Socialist or a Communist to join, the only requirements are that you recognize that society is divided into 2 classes: the wage slaves, and the ruling class who own the means of production.

    Voting
    Our group will vote on bills which advance the interest of the oppressed workers. After a brief debate in this thread, I will post the overall concensus of our group's opinion on a particular bill. You do not always have to vote exactly as the group reccomends, however if you disagree it is recomended that you post in this thread to debate.

    It is different from a party in that their is not as much commitment.

    This is kind of redundant.

    We've been discussing this in the CFCSP HQ. I also happen to believe that its redundant. However, anyone who isn't a member of the CFC Socialist Party that joins this group should instead join our party, seeing that our party has a large group of Marxists.

    We here at the Marxist Caucus believe we are more to the left than the CFCSP.

    EDIT: I'm going to try to get this thread taken down and put it up in the CFCSP to make it like a section within the party.

    Why do you care?
    FYI, the Ordoliberal Caucus has listed The Marxists as a cooperating organization on some issues. As our joke-"initiation ceremony" is to curse Marx and Hayek in the same sentence, we obviously will disagree more than agree, but I hope that in those rare occasions that we agree we will work together well.

    I would like to join the caucus, but not the Socialist party. I'm perfectly happy with the ION party;)
